Browser window completely transparent

Browser window completely transparent

Brave Version : 124.1.65.11

I recently updated to the latest version (124.1.65.114) of Brave on my Ubuntu 22.04.4 (LTS) (Wayland, Gnome 42.9). After relaunching the browser, the window started flickering between transparent and white, then became entirely black after a few seconds. I closed and reopened it, and now the window has been fully transparent for the past 10 minutes (see screenshot below).

I tried launching brave with --disable-gpu, thinking it might be a hardware acceleration issue, but without success.

I can grab the edge of the window (see screenshot below), and when I shake my cursor very fast, I can see a hint of a border.

I am also able to input text where the search bar would be and hit enter :

EDIT : Chromium is updated to the latest version, and works perfectly fine.

The problem indeed seems to be from Wayland (as always lol). I switched back to X11, and now Brave works perfectly.

I am leaving this post open to raise awareness towards the developers.
